Producing news is what I love to do. And my philosophy is simple: let the content be my guide. I do not let a format restrict me from telling the days stories. My viewers come to me to inform them of what happened overnight and what they need to know to get the day started. That means having the latest content and up-to-the-minute weather and traffic. Everyday is different, and I try to find different ways to showcase what we have. I love looking for the newest stories, along with the best video and sound, to make sure my viewers keep coming back. Below you'll find a selection of different news blocks. Please click here if you're looking for segments I've produced. Please contact me with any questions or critiques you may have.

At 6:30 I want to make sure my viewers who are just joining us know what they need to know, but also present what my viewers at 6:00 saw in a different way. Instead of leading with a reporter, I used live pictures and video, along with my weather anchor to tell the story. The stock market also opens at 6:30 on the west coast, so we do a daily business report to get everyone up to speed.

The major story in our area was three hours away. Since it was too far for my crew to go, we improvised. I sent them to a city where many were seeing the smoke from the fire. We also gave them new video the nightside crew shot on their way back.
In the rest of this A-Block you can see how am to constantly use the newest stories to make sure my viewers are informed for the day.

The Olympics are huge for NBC stations. More people who typically don't watch your channel, have a chance to see what you do best. Plus, it's what everyone is talking about. In this show we had a great breaking story, we really pushed to make sure they knew what happened overnight, plus what they needed going into their day with the Olympics.
